Pros And Cons

The perks and drawbacks of this profession depend on the field that you're interested in. If you decide to design jewelry, you'll surely get extreme satisfaction from seeing your designs made into beautiful pieces of jewelry, whether or not you actually made them.

If you decide to be self-employed, which is very common—about 50 percent of jewelers are self-employed— you'll be able to choose your work environment. You may choose to work from your home, or you may decide to own a small shop and work from there.

No matter what you decide to pursue, jewelers and jewelry repairers often have to sit for a long time while working on their pieces. They also must have the ability to concentrate for long periods of time on the task at hand. If one is not paying close attention, injury can occur. Some of the machines can get very hot, and others are sharp. Safety is very important in this field.
